Paul Banyan

By: lorriebird Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

5:23 pm - I found this one while setting up my Dad for the webcam cache nearby. Good thing I didn't need the hint! Thanks.

Dahling, I Love You But Give Me Fifth Avenue!

By: lorriebird Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

5:40 pm - I was amazed that I was able to do all 4 caches downtown here in 45 min. It helped that the 2nd stage was right near where I parked! TNLN. Thanks.

Snappy

By: devoid17 And My Geo Assistant Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

10:29 am - I saw the cache quickly, but thought it was trash. When I got a closer look, I realized that was it. TNLN. Thanks.

a "not-so-healthy" cache

By: bhrbabydoc Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

10:41 am - It looks like the container has been upgraded on this one and it's no longer a micro. Anyway, I found it without any problems on this cool day. TNLN. Thanks.

Angel's Rest

By: bhrbabydoc Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

11:04 am - Yeah, I felt a bit weird hanging out here. Luckily it was a quick grab and go.

Naples Pier

By: wethiker and U4EA Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

3:59 pm - The coordinates seemed to point me under the showers for this one, so I got all sandy looking in the wrong places. Later I found it in a much more reasonable spot, though well-hidden. Left a racing TB. Thanks!

Shop Till You Drop on Fifth Avenue, Naples, FL

By: Pittsburgh Transplant & Tag A Long Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Not chosen

:23 pm - I got my Dad on the phone and he took the pic for me. There's a little camera inside the canopy, so I thought that might it too, but I guess not. Thanks!

Calusa Dig

By: Scottydog and Pup Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Virtual

11:43 am - We went out for a walk from the place we were staying for the week and came across this one. Thanks for the interesting landmark.

Cryptozoology

By: GladesMarsman Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

4:44 pm - I thought the ape did actually stink, but I guess it was the paving trucks. Quick find. Got a picture and moved on. TNLN. Thanks!

JunglePete's Office - The Outhouse?

By: JunglePete Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

4:53 pm - Neat little spot and a funny hint. The place had just closed. Thanks!

JunglePete's Office - Big Forest, Smallwoods

By: JunglePete Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

3:54 pm - I found the replacement cache which didn't have the clue to the bonus cache, but I wasn't planning on doing them all anyway, so it wasn't a big deal. TNLN. Thanks!

JunglePete's Office - Train Ain't Coming

By: JunglePete Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

4:06 pm - I made a quick dash out of the car to find this one and came up with it quickly. Thanks!

JunglePete's Office - Blood Drive Today!

By: JunglePete Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

5:57 pm - This spot had a great view near sunset. Thanks!

Bend in the Trail II

By: Tarzan, Jane & Boy Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

5:48 pm - I guess there's no icon for a gator hazard. Perhaps there should be! I thought this was a little more challenging than a 1.5, mostly because of the gator hazard. I was pretty sure one was going to jump out and grab me at any moment. In the end, the worst that happened is I stuck my hand in some turkey vulture poop. TNLN. Thanks!

One Mile Around

By: rosmo Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

1:01 pm - Great view. Lots of people and dogs up here today. The log looks to have been previously soaked, but is dry now. Thanks.

City Stairway: Eugenia Nano

By: rosmo Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

2:13 pm - This was the third cache I found on SF stairway walks today. Thankfully it was in plain sight. My calves will definitely be sore tomorrow. Thanks!

Nice Neighborhood Garden

By: WalruZ Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

12:20 pm - Cool area. Here on an SF stairway walk and this was the first cache of the day. Quick find using the description. Thanks!

Dead Man's Chest: Treasure Map

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

2:26 pm - Wow, lots of dogs running around crazily around here. I took one of the racing TBs and will drop it off far away in a few days. Thanks.

Dead Man's Chest: Message in a Bottle

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

2:26 pm - Audrey loved watching the surfers here. Quite a large crowd was watching them on the waves which must have been at least 15 feet high. Got the clue and headed for the next.

Dead Man's Chest: Pirates' Treasure

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

2:34 pm - Arrrrr! Got this one too. I liked the little treasure box. That was enough caching for the day so we headed home. TNLN. Thanks!

Santa Cruz Wharf

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

11:46 am - I found a cache near here once, maybe in the same exact spot? I had Ellie grab it for me and I signed it followed by HitsMan and Chris. It's always fun to come out here and watch the sea lions laugh at us.

50FeetOff

By: Dr Jekyll Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

I managed to spot this one with GeoBrowns and MotorBug after the Garmin event. Nice camo!

ACTIVITY

By: Venona Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

3:55 pm - Had some serious help on this one, but did my part as well. Thanks for more fun.

Acquedotto

By: bullit Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

3:23 pm - This was an excellent hide. One by one we found it, but let everyone enjoy discovering the hide. This was our last cache of the day as it was starting to rain pretty hard on the way back over the bridge. Thanks!

The Calzone Cache

By: cowswithguns9119 Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

4:04 pm - OK, one more quick one on the way home. Really quick actually, almost a drive up. Thanks.
